commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show president obama lead big six points in eye but locked in a tight balle with romney in new hampshire and wisconsin. nearly all interviews conducted before hurricane sandy, which just might end up being the defining moment of this election. joining me today to discuss all of this and more, msnbc political analyst and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think abo
well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama,
governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> we know what this president believes. but governor romney -- >> with these guys, it all depends on who you're talking to, where you are, what time of day it is, what state you're in, what the polls say. how the weather is. it always, always depends, everything depends. i never met more two guys who everything depends more on. i don't know what they are for, ladies and gentlemen. >> mr. romney made changes, too, depending on the weather, but not this president. this week president obama has shown why he is above the man who wants his job and he's made mr. romney seem downright laughable on the issue. >> he promised to be a post pa
's trip. on the ground, president obama and governor christie visited relief shelters throughout the area. the governor offered this assessment of the president to storm victims. he means what he says. it's important that he is here. christie had more praise later on. >> we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to be able to show the president that personally, had an opportunity to see it and discuss it at length, and going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and see the president and his concern, the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. i discussed all those issues today with the president, and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately, to help get us those things, while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me, since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, and it's been a great working rela

hours. president obama just wrapping up remarks in nashua, new hampshire, moments ago, hitting governor romney over what he calls a one-point economic plan. >> folks at the top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates. outsource jobs. they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. >> governor romney campaigning right here in battleground florida alongside senator marco rubio, government headed to his second event of the day in the sunshine state. he addressed voters in pensacola earlier this afternoon. once again, taking it to president obama. >> he promised his would be a post partisan presidency. we've watched him over these last four years and he's been devisive and demonized almost any group that opposed him. >> both governor romney and vice president biden canceled planned trips tomorrow to virginia as hurricane sandy starts to close in there. the governor rescheduling his visit to virginia will campaign instead in the must-win state of ohio. if the buckeye state is governor romney's must-win, same can
. president obama is doing what he had to do. governor christie's doing what he feels he has to do. but i lived and breathes politicked. to show you how i've become obsessed with the tragedy in my district i got a colleague from msnbc asking what governor christie said about president obama. christie attacked him based on past performance. i'm living in a bubble right now. i had no idea. if i had to look at it overall and stark politics it's a short-term benefit to the president. by election day, people will make whatever decision they're going to make, obviously hime hoping for governor romney. president obama's doing what he has to do. it's important for the country. >> thank you so much. thanks for what you're doing for all of your folks and good luck to you. >> thank you. >> in the district. airports are shut down by hurricane sandy but beginning to resume operations slowly. this morning, laguardia airport, completely flooded during the storm, reopened limited service office jfk and newark opened. tom kos tell la made his way to laguardia overnight. what are you seeing there? >> repor
and for the people of our state. >> that's new jersey governor chris christy praising president obama and eliciting howls of outrage from the gop. after all, christie's their hero. he's their guy. he's the one that a lot of them actually wanted to be the nominee. mitt romney had chris christie give the speech at the keynote convention. >> i have behind me a man who is an american hero. he's a real hero in republican circles because he's been forthright. we agree on a whole host of issues. i think we're pretty sympathetic on the issues that matter today. >> hmm. i wonder if romney would still say that he's sympathetic on the issue of president obama. republicans can't accept the idea that one of their favorite republicans would actually work with the president to help americans in need and so it's getting ugly. >> new jersey governor chris christie has decided to play the role of a greek column today for president obama. chris christie's the only republican -- not just praising obama. i mean, it's -- it's -- let me just put it this way. is it wrong for one man to love another man? but that man love
for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the j
. that completely blows up governor romney's closing argument for why he should replace president obama in the oval office. >> indeed. jared, it's not just this issue of bipartisanship, but mitt romney, as you know, has said, previously and repeatedly, particularly in the debates, that he would like to remove an organization like fema. >> right. >> now, not only is that highly inefficient, in terms of resourcing, but can i ask you, would it not also likely raise local taxes, because if each state is required to provide emergency assistance, then each state has to fund what the federal government is providing right this moment. >> precisely. instead of having a centralized disaster relief fund, which, of course, fema represents, each state would have to do so. by the way, they wouldn't do so. because state budgets don't work that way. everything is fungible. and in tough times like now, states can't run budget deficits. that fund would be dry, i guarantee you. and what's going to happen? the federal government's going to say, no, forget it? that's just not part of our budget? again, you know, mitt r
doubts the fact that governor christie and president obama want to have a recovery work as smoothly, as comprehensively, and as efficiently as it possibly can to help these people. >> if i can go back to you, jonathan capehart. i want to mention, mike viqueira talking about the cynical nature of politics, and suggesting or implying that every day is a political day. well, yesterday we received some criticism for discussing mitt romney's so-called storm relief event in the context of a campaign event. and i was eviscerated by telephone calls and so on. but now it emerges, according to buzz feed, that $5,000 was spent by the campaign to make the display of food look bigger. what's your assessment of what happened yesterday, john? >> oh, my. a campaign event that was not a campaign event, but was a campaign event. >> and was funded by the romney campaign, to the tune, no less, of $5,000. >> of $5,000. governor romney was stuck. he had a campaign event planned for ohio, a state that he needs to win. hurricane sandy blows in, devastates everything, decides not to campaign, but he still i
obama and governor romney. someone who actually made the case for shutting down fema. in passing the responsibility on to the states and some people say maybe we're learning a lesson. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> governor romney says it would be better to privatize fema. that's jarring and so was his reason. >> we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more than we're taking in. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral. for us to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids knowing full well that we'll be dead and gone before it occurs makes no sense at all. >> with eight days to go in this election, that is the choice in this election. do we want a president that believes government can be there when we need it most or someone who thinks it's immoral to sp
city, president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie. after the two leaders surveyed the damage along the jersey shore, the president vowed he wouldn't tolerate red tape. >> i instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team. you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayor, governors, county officials, if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> during one of his stops, governor christie found more victims in utter despair. >> i need help. >> we're going to help you. >> everything is gone. >> i know. >> so many people in that situation. in new york, the desperate race to get america's biggest city back up and running continues. water is being pumped out of the subway system. officials in new york and connecticut say the subway and commuter rail lines will start returning today although on a limited basis. it is an amazing but erie sight. much of the skyline of lower manhattan remains dark as this city enters the fourth day of a massive power outage. the flooding crisis from sandy goes beyond the east coast. these are pictures
by name. governor jeb bush did. claiming mr. obama is making excuses for his failures. >> it's almost as though the dog ate my home work is the reason why we're going through tough times. >> reporter: early voting reopened in maryland with long lines. >> three hours? >> yeah. it's worth it. >> reporter: in areas where flooding destroyed some polling places, they're considering putting up tents to make sure that residents can vote. more polls have the president up five points in ohio. they say things are so close and such a small lead in virginia and florida, they're calling it a tie. lynn? >> thank you. >>> we mentioned the obama-christie meeting is an extraordinarily coming together of two people that are polar opposites politically. men who have very recently delivered some extremely biting comments about the other. but now putting citizens above politics. it's very interesting. a few hours before their meeting, former florida governor and romney supporter jeb bush had this to say on the stump. >> do you honestly think this president is capable of bringing people together? his entir
of president obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie responding together and touring the damage together, this emphatic visual rebuke to the republican closing argument that president obama can never work with republicans. this isn't israel invading egypt in 1956, but this is a real deal and rare october surprise that could affect this election and honestly nobody saw it coming. booking tonight for the show about which we are very glad and excited. new york's governor andrew cuomo is going to be joining us live in just a couple of minutes. >>> governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doings jobs people elected us to do. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal co
minutes ago. president obama hanging on to a slim four-point lead in the commonwealth over governor romney. according to the latest "washington post" poll. joining me on the state of the race. jo anne reed, managing editor of the grio who was supposed to be with us in florida. >> i'm jealous. >> the latest poll, alex. "washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the el
